Good find Sami....it looks like it could be a family photo of his son Samuel who was born in 1890....It's unusual to see a photo from this era without a photograper's logo on the front and a decorative back with artwork and a business address...so I would suggest it was a personal photo and not a commercial one.

That's what I thought too. :)
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

So did I, though I've no idea what it might mean in this context.

It is a photograph of Samuel Perrett who was an artist who painted in oils for a living. Mainly of wealthy farmers' livestock. He lived at Compass, which was/is a hamlet on the A38 between Bridgwater and North Petherton. He is a member of my family and I would love to see the picture as I could probably identify him from another photograph. If you should want to sell it or show me the picture, please contact me. The Sussex photographer was this Samuel's son.

Thanks for your interesting reply, Jaker, especially the explanation of the reference to Compass.
